What time is teaching me about style is that understated equals elegance. Here, I've paired a simple pair of blue jeans and sweater + blouse combo with a cashmere menswear-inspired coat and understated (yet, quality) pieces to get a look that I think is surprisingly elegant.
Keeping things somewhat simplistic allows the statement pieces (like the coat and scarf) to stand out. Plus, it's such a classic way to style. Don't you think?
Cashmere Coat: Neiman Marcus

Share with me your thoughts on what elegance means to you. Would adore hearing them!
Joy & grace, T.
